Taylor Hicks, who's perhaps best known as the winner of the fifth season of American Idol, which is a very popular singing competition, stopped by the EVO 2013 tournament in Las Vegas, but perhaps even more shocking — he apparently competed in Super Smash Bros. Melee and finished tied for 257th place.

There haven't been many known celebrity fighting game players over the years, as the last time a big star said they were a fan of the genre was when actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Lincoln, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, 3rd Rock from the Sun, etc.) went on Jimmy Fallon's talk show in 2010.

Still, it's kind of cool to see some celebrities in the entertainment scene who are fans of the same stuff we are.
